2023 OIAF Poster


Designed by Matthew Rankin

Statement from the Artist

“One time, I spent a year in Ottawa making propaganda films for the Canadian Government. All the work I did there was banned and tossed out like a used condom but, in the process, I developed a very earnest love for the graphic identities of government institutions, some of which are truly dazzling works of art. Inspired by the minimalist pamphlets designed for Parks Canada by Gottschalk & Ash throughout the 1970s, my poster for OIAF is playing with that very Canadian tension between bureaucratic micro-management and experimental art.”
